The Complete Destruction of a Hard Drive


Published 2003


Oh my god. In an hilarious mess of a movie, Stefan Brown, Tristan Coyle, and Alex Antonio take an unneccesarily long amount of time (16 minutes and 14 seconds) to destroy the indestructable: an outdated 4GB hard drive that used to belong to Alex. Nobody told us, but hard drives are tough as rock. Watch it to see how it's done, watch it for Alex's hilarious antics, watch it because you have nothing better to do, but don't say I didn't warn you. This was filmed with Stefan's Canon Mini-DV camcorder and was not edited.

Subject: Yes, it's a mess
The creators of this film describe it as a hilarious mess. That's not quite true. The fact is, this film could easily be hilarious if it were edited and given some music.

To observe this point proven, please visit the following website:

I would never make this reedited version available on the archive, because it is stupid. But it is nowhere near as stupid as what it was 8 times longer, and with no editing. There's a point where Fester House needs to stop being so self-indulgent and take some pride in their complete destruction films.

I know it's fun to break stuff, so it should also be fun to watch it.

EDIT: Ahh, it's fun to think back to the good old days of panning the films of Fester House. I probably put the original review up in April of 2004, but it seems like forever ago. Time moves faster on the Internet, such that I would find myself nostalgic for only a year ago, and occasionally even pine for last week. Oh, well, Mr. Brown should know that there's actually money to be made in destroying hard drives. Check out this humorous link:

And you know, I wouldn't mind seeing more from Fester House, if they haven't gone to college or died yet. Ahhh, the memories. *sob*

Subject: I liked tampora's edit better
The shorter version, set to the classical music, was a lot better and a lot more 'digestable'. I didn't bother wathcing the longer, original version which is this entry in the video archvie, but i can imagine what it is like. Good job kids, i am glad to see you guys doing cool things like messing around with video cameras and editing software and computer parts, rather then drugs and egging peoples housese and shit. Good work.

That re-edit was one of the funniest videos I have ever seen. We recently smashed up a couple of cd-roms and I may edit the video with music like that, but also keep an extended version because you miss out on a lot of funny stuff with an edit like that. Thank you for making my day, and I hope you're not taking our films too seriously.
